The Sign Invitational 2017 promises to be Magical!

7 months out from the 2017 Sign Invitational and we are off and running. Invites were sent out this week. 16 of the 25 spots have been filled and we are extremely excited with the field already. The field will be announced once the 25 spots are filled or on November 1st, whichever comes first.

Judging by the way the field is shaping up so far, everyone better bring their A game this year.

Sign Magic! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!



Ready to ROLL!

Today we loaded everything into a trailer and packed up for Orlando. The trailer currently houses the ballot box and stand, Peter Sawatzky’s entry, Dan Sawatzky’s entry, a sculpture for Coastal Enterprises that Dan made, Peter Poanessa’s entry, Phil Vanderkraat’s entry, Synergy Sign’s entry, number plaques for all of the entires, Xpressive Graphix’s entry, and various other tools, thank you plaques, and other things needed to pull this contest off.

( 5000 ballot entries for the voting process. )
